Our Labs

Allenspach Lab

Eric AllenspachThe Allenspach Lab is focused on translational work to understand immune dysregulation disorders – those with overlapping immunodeficiency and autoimmune features. The lab combines genetic and deep immunophenotyping techniques to identify novel pathogenic variants and use human samples and animal models to probe the mechanism of dysregulation.

Acharya Lab

Mridu AcharyaThe Acharya Lab studies how immune cells integrate signals from pathogens and their environment to produce effective immunity against pathogens while maintaining tolerance to self-derived antigens.

Debley Lab

Jason Debley 70x70The Debley Lab is engaged in an array of translational work investigating the role of the airway epithelium in childhood asthma.

Jackson Lab

Shaun JacksonThe Jackson Lab studies the immune mechanisms underlying the development of systemic autoimmune diseases, focusing in particular on the role of B cells in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The lab uses various chimeric and genetic knock-in murine strains to model the biology of human autoimmune diseases.

James Lab

Richard James 70x70The James Lab is interested in understanding how genetic variation and pharmacological treatments alter cellular signaling. The lab uses quantitative proteomics to understand which signaling pathways are up-regulated during disease and in response to these therapies.

Miao Lab

Carol MiaoThe Miao Lab pursues safer, more effective treatments for hemophilia. The lab focuses on developing innovative gene therapy and immunotherapy approaches.

Piliponsky Lab

Adrian Piliponsky 70x70The Piliponsky Lab studies inflammatory responses involving mast cells and myeloid cells. Its goal is to understand how the body controls the immune system’s response to bacterial infections – and how this process becomes dysregulated.

Zheng Lab

Betty ZhengThe Zheng Lab is dedicated towards understanding the pathways of disease in pediatric gastrointestinal autoimmune conditions such as Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
